Machine voting is not possible because New Jersey does not yet have electronic poll books that would allow officials to check to make sure someone didn’t vote on a machine before they count their VBM ballot. Provisional ballots are counted after vote-by-mail ballots are counted so that such a determination can be made. This is a security measure for our election. To have the use of the vote-by-mail system and voting machines simultaneously, New Jersey will have to adopt electronic poll books. An electronic poll book is a system containing an electronic list of registered voters that may be transported to the polling location.
